The Amazon Echo, I absolutely love it, I finally have the home of the future
But When I want to turn on a ceiling fan, or use any device that uses a RF (Radio Frequency) Remote
its back to the pile sitting on my coffee table in my living room.
I searched high and low for a learning remote for RF, but they do not exist.
so how does the saying go? The impossible just takes a little longer.
There is a WONDERFUL company called 'adafruit'
that makes wearable Arduino modules.
I found them originally when I was working on one of my costumes, well in that time they
have grown into a full fledged DIY paradise with boards, and parts, and gadgets and scripts to
do anything imaginable.
The part I used was a "Adafruit Feather HUZZAH with ESP8266 WiFi" board,
its a tiny 1" x 3" board that costs like $17.00
Code and tutorial based on the great open source lib & example code at http://tinkerman.cat/emulate-wemo-device-esp8266/... which is based off of the Python example code by http://tinkerman.cat/emulate-wemo-device-esp8266/...
